GALLERY: Alice Cooper, live in California

Last Friday the master of all things shocking Alice Cooper came to the Valley Center in California to do what he does best, and we were there to take in the action.

In typical Alice fashion there were a number of costume changes and stage props including snakes, Jason Vorhees-esque knife-wielders, electrocutions and a lot of fake blood. If you’ve ever seen Alice Cooper before you know he can put on a show and this was no exception.

And with an extensive setlist to power through with over 20 songs, Alice and co. also blasted out number of covers by Jimi Hendrix, The Who and The Doors – check out the full setlist below.
